AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

"Waiting for heartbeats" - lovely!

Genie said...

This is such a sharp and clear shot. I, too, wonder what the two men are chatting about.Once the performance begins those empty seats won’t look so empty..

I really like the black seats set against their white shirts along with the white circular lights in that top third of the photo. It's a nice balance to the human element taking place. It's so exciting to have a new building isn't it?

A nice capture of the structure on an auditorium. Interesting effect of the lighting on the wall.

I like it! The incline adds interest and so do the lights.
